Direct care staff: make a difference for homeless families

Homelessness is a scary situation. For families, the lack of stability can be devastating. Our staff members help our families stay safe as they transition into a home of their own. This challenging and rewarding position makes a difference for those who need it most.

Transitions at Devens, a program of Our Father’s House, began as Sylvia’s Haven, a donor-funded shelter for women and children in 1987. Now part of the state shelter system, Transitions serves 20 families in two locations. Our Father’s House also runs a shelter for individuals, a food pantry, women’s transitional housing and men’s sober housing. Our staff members have a true love of helping people, with some members pursuing careers in social or human services.

Our best workers have good people skills, are dependable, eager to learn and work well independently. Staff training, formal and informal, provides skills and techniques to develop the interpersonal skills needed to work effectively with a diverse population. We are in Devens, just minutes from Routes 2 and 495. The shelter is staffed 24/7; staff members work scheduled 8-hour shifts. Relief shifts are frequently available.
